Your front entry is the first thing guest see when they come to your home. It should be welcoming and inviting . When I decorate my entry I try to look at it like I am the guest and ask myself” Would I feel warmth and hospitality from the first impression?”
Many times the front door has a wreath adorning it and while that is lovely,I have a glass door and sometimes a wreath blocks the light coming through to the inside of my foyer. So this year I opted for an arrangement that greets you at the base of the door.
Today I am linking up with http://southernhospitalityblog.com/fresh-spring-floral-door-bucket/ to share my front entry. It has changed slightly a few times already this spring as I play with the arrangement. I will share some of them with you.
I like a mixture of garden item and candles to grace my doorstep and welcome my friends.
Lanterns are everywhere you shop and a wonderful additon to the entry . In the evening I light the candle and a gentle fragrance greets my guest as well as the added glow of the flame. You could use those new battery candles as well, some even come with remotes or a timer.
I tried the flower cart but it was just a bit too much so I moved it to the greenhouse and went back to the doorstep arrangement.
It doesn’t have to be elaborate to create that inviting greeting , just enough to evoke a cheerful welcome.
Thanks for visiting me today!
